He also did the documentary about Torre Espacio (which you can find on youtube).

I wonder if the SWFC doc was shown here yet or not...

For some reason it seems that there haven't been many documentaries about towers lately, on Discovery or NGC (most of the construction documentaries are about bridges - not that I don't like those )

I saw a picture of him on the Discovery Channel site climbing the tower crane on the Trump Tower in Chicago, so they must be doing a show on that skyscraper sometime.

I know he is scared of heights, but don't tell me hanging in a window washing gondola 700 feet above the ground is a walk in the park.

He was climbing the crane on the Shanghai WFC, not Trump.

Hmm, interesting. They usually do these documentaries when the project is close to completion.

And yeah, it's strange that they kept saying it's the world's tallest.
Since when does education have ANYTHING to do with hosting a television program. It's about entertainment. The smart, educated ones should be off camera writing the show. The entertaining charismatic ones should be hosting it.

Saw the discovery channel special

Pretty good. But he kept refering to it as the world's tallest building. Amazing to see this building as it is,not just the render.

The tower looks amazing. It seems like they have started to work in the interior part of the tower.

Yeah that night shot with the lights makes me appreciate the tower even more, once it's done I bet it's going to be one of the better looking towers in the world.
